PALM BEACH, Florida, Dec. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- It seems that every new report on projected revenues in the cannabis markets, global and U.S and North America, all seem to agree on one thing: The cannabidiol (CBD) revolution will continue to rise. An industry insider, Technavio, who has been monitoring the global cannabis-infused edible products market, recently projected that the market is poised to grow by USD $17.27 billion during 2018-2022 at a CAGR of over 25% during the forecast period. The market is driven by the growing social acceptance of cannabis. In addition, the increasing number of countries decriminalizing cannabis is anticipated to further boost the growth of the cannabis-infused edible products market. As consumers accept, and even demand more CBD products, the future is projected to continue to rise in years to come. The Technavio report said: "The cannabis industry has emerged as lucrative business segment with immense potential for market growth and is attracting many new vendors and large investors. This is due to the increasing social acceptance of recreational marijuana and cannabis-infused edible products across different regions. This has not only increased the sales and revenues of major corporations but has also significantly added to the income of several governments. Vendors are witnessing an increase in the growth opportunities in businesses involving cannabis-infused edible products such as brownies, ice creams, and chocolates. Thus, the growing social acceptance of cannabis is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period." Active Companies from around the market with current developments this week include: Singlepoint, Inc. (otcqb:SING), Medical Marijuana, Inc. (otcpk:MJNA), mCig, Inc. (otcpk:MCIG), Canopy Growth Corporation /zigman2/quotes/200603886/composite CGC -0.12% /zigman2/quotes/202205609/delayed CA:WEED -1.12% , The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (otcqx:TGODF) /zigman2/quotes/206870535/delayed CA:TGOD -1.39% .
Additionally a report from Statista has reported that it expects that U.S. consumer sales of CBD will reach around $1.8 billion U.S. dollars by 2022. That would be a massive increase from around half a billion dollars in 2018. Thus, the CBD consumer market is following the trend of the total legal cannabis market in the U.S., which is projected to be a 23-billion-dollar business by 2025.

In the industry developments and happenings in the market this week include:
Medical Marijuana, Inc. (otcpk:MJNA), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States that launched the world's first-ever cannabis-derived nutraceutical products, brands and supply chain, recently announced that subsidiary HempMeds® Brasil applauds ANVISA (the National Agency for Health Supervision) for unanimously approving the regulation of medical marijuana to be sold at pharmacies and drugstores nationwide. Brazil's new regulations will be published soon on the Federal Official Gazette and entered into law 90 days after that.
"These new regulations to allow the rollout of cannabis products in pharmacies and drugstores create a new category of medicinal cannabis products in Brazil," said HempMeds® Brasil Vice President Caroline Heinz. "This change will allow patients almost immediate access to CBD products – a huge difference from today where the process takes three months. The approximate four million patients in Brazil can benefit from medical cannabis much easier with the ability to visit their doctor's office and go directly to a pharmacy. We hope that this will encourage more people to see how cannabis could help improve their health and wellness."
mCig, Inc. (otcpk:MCIG). a company focusing on the marketing, sale, and distribution of CBD products, recently announced that it has entered into a binding letter of intent ("LOI") to create a joint venture with Bare Roots Rx LLC., a leading supplier of high quality, organic botanical CBD products.

Canopy Growth Corporation /zigman2/quotes/200603886/composite CGC -0.12% /zigman2/quotes/202205609/delayed CA:WEED -1.12% recently officially revealed its Cannabis 2.0 portfolio of products last week, set to come to market as part of the second wave of Canadian cannabis commercialization. With December 16, 2019, being the first date new product formats can be sold into distribution channels, the Company expects that in most markets new products will not be seen on shelves until early in January 2020. Leveraging learnings from Cannabis 1.0, the Company will stagger its launch of various products and formats to ensure a smooth roll-out. As such, availability will vary by province based on their individual ordering and distribution activities. While the Company is providing this update in advance of the launch of Cannabis 2.0 products, for competitive reasons, it will not provide ongoing updates during the actual rollout period.
